The Gardens

Poem #12 from the illustrated playlist ‘A Shropshire Grad’. I wrote this poem at the beginning of lockdown and it began a journey into the poetry world that’s seen me learn and discover so much. Channelling my thoughts into poetry has been the only real highlight of the year and I would like to thank everyone who supported me in pursuing this creative venture. I hope 2021 is a better year for us all.

The Devil

Poem #10 from my playlist ‘A Shropshire Grad’. This poem was originally supposed to show my disdain for UK politician Nigel Farage – who, I believe, has had the most influence in creating hatred in society. But when I came to write it, I found myself exploring whether he could really be called ‘the devil’.
